I'm curious how many officers have had experiences with these new 'mini-bikes' that are becoming so common. Another officer told me that the larger ones are considered mopeds, but the smaller ones are not....?? What section of CH90 do you use....I've heard several different stories.

....As a side note, I know some towns have introduced ordinances dealing with these bikes.

Every person operating a motorized bicycle, riding as a passenger on a motorized bicycle or operating a motorized scooter shall wear protective headgear conforming with such minimum standards of construction and performance as the registrar may prescribe, and no person operating a motorized scooter shall permit any other person to ride as a passenger on such scooter.

I love the contradictions.

No contradictions; it makes sense (although it could be phrased more clearly :wink: ). It only prohibits passengers on motorized scooters, not on motorized bicycles.

I just had this conversation with my Chief... He said the Chiefs Of Police Assoc. are drafting a proposed bill for the legislature, but they (all the Chiefs) are going to approach there own towns to also establish town/city bylaws or ordinances (as a back-up) that will deal specfically mini/"pocket" bikes. Soon my brothers, soon!

Then they are ALL MINE!! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
